Fine jewellery brand Nadine Aysoy has expanded its Celeste collection with colourful new additions for summer.
The Nadine Aysoy Celeste collection is inspired by lucky Chinese coins, using smooth rounds of white jade to decorate gold rings, earrings and bracelets. This neutral gem is contrasted by pops of colour, courtesy of blue and yellow sapphires, black diamonds and green tsavorites.
“I’ve been using white jade and combining it with coloured stones as it’s non-traditional and more contemporary,” says founder and designer Nadine Aysoy, who was named New Designer of the Year at the Retail Jeweller UK Jewellery Awards 2018. “People usually use green jade, but I stayed away from the green, and the other colours, because I find them to be kitsch.”
As well as its ancient connection to Chinese culture and its apparent healing powers – jade is said to be able to calm the mind – Aysoy also chose to work with white jade as she believes it taps into the current jewellery trend for enamel, but in a more precious way.
Within the expanded Nadine Aysoy Celeste lines are new ring and earring styles, as well as more petite versions of the designs, such as earring huggies set with sapphires and diamonds.
“The Tsarina is the most recognisable collection I have, but the Celeste collection is the one that will become iconic,” says Aysoy.
